Neoprene is used for face masks, dish-washing gloves (as an alternative to latex), scuba wet suits, leggings, skirts, pants, t-shirts and other clothing. Neoprene is also known as "Mixed dialkyl thioureas (MDTU), "leather of the summer" or "scuba".
Neoprene is water resistant, temperature controlling and flexible which makes it a perfect material for things like computer sleeves, wet suits, athletic shoes, gloves and knee braces. Neoprene traps warm air between the fibers or a thin layer of water between the suit and the wearer's skin that helps to keep the wearer warm. Sensitivity to neoprene might be exacerbated by sweating and could elicit redness, itching, scaling and sometimes blistering.
